Hello everyone, we are happy to announce the 2nd Universal Cup Semifinal and the 2024 Universal Cup Summer Summit.

In Season 2, thanks to everyone's support and efforts from our staff, there was a lot of progress compared to Season 1. We have over 3000 teams registered and so far we have scheduled over 30 stages in this season. We also managed to implement a registration webpage and host all kinds of contests on our platform, including the run-twice contest, the prime contest and the challenge contest. We also reached many agreements with Huawei about future cooperation, including the most exciting part: the onsite final. (Cooperation between Universal Cup and Huawei)

In the 2024 ICPC Latin American Championship, Universal Cup was invited to run the Huawei Challenge as a major part of the event. Our co-president Jingbang also gave a brief introduction of Universal Cup during the event to all the participants and coaches.

We still have more things coming! We have just finalized the rules for selecting the 2nd Universal Cup Final teams. The 2nd Universal Cup Semifinals will take place online, in order to select teams for the Final Contest. The contest is scheduled on one of the last two weekends of June (June 23 or 30). In addition, we have decided to host a special event, the 2024 Universal Cup Summer Summit in June. Supported by Huawei, we plan on inviting 10 teams to the wonderful city of Cancun, Mexico. The event will last around 5 days, including an onsite competition using the semi-final contest, a city tour, and some other activities. All fees will be covered by us. The exact schedule will be announced soon.

We want to express our gratitude again to everyone, especially problem-setters who have shared their wonderful contests with us. We are also planning to design souvenirs and prizes which will go to our contributors and participants, so stay tuned!

Here are the rules for the semifinal and the summer summit.
